Just created one (not OMAP and not this driver, but that does not matter now):

max9867: probe of 1-0018 failed with error -12

driver was instructed to alloc insane number of bytes using devm_kzalloc in
max9867_i2c_probe.
Now, if probe function calls devm_kzalloc two times and one of them fails,
you cannot easily say which one without looking at assembly listing.

Or did I misunderstand your question?

Best regards,
ladis
